Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Tiruchirappalli will be releasing the shortlist of candidates who appeared in CAT 2010 and fulfill shortlisting criteria as shown in Table 1 and Table 2.

Procedure for shortlisting PA Process

Step 1: Based on CAT population averages of X, XII and Under-Graduate (UG) reported marks, minimum cut off marks for X, XII and UG are fixed as given in Table 1. From candidates meeting such cut off marks criteria, only candidates with minimum CAT cut offs as given in Table 2 are considered for further processing.

Table 1

Qualification Cut Off Marks %
X 75 70 60 55 60
XII 70 65 55 50 55
UG 65 60 50 50 50


Table 2

CAT Component Cut off Percentile
Total 90 80 60 60 60
Verbal 85 70 55 40 55
Quantitative 80 70 50 40 50
DI 75 60 50 40 50


Step 2: Weights of 8.0, 7.0 and 5.0 are assigned to X, XII and UG marks at and above the cut off marks. The weights are distributed over intervals of marks such that higher intervals get higher weight, with the exception that UG marks at and above the following category-wise level get a uniform highest weight: General 85%, OBC 85%, SC 80%, ST 80% and PWD/DAP 80%. Based on differences in the average graduation marks of different subject streams, an additional weight of 5.0 is assigned to candidates in UG streams of arts, humanities, commerce, management and social sciences. A weight of 10.0 is assigned to reported work experience of 12 months and above using intervals of experience in months such that 36-47 months of experience gets the highest weight while experience of 72 months and above is not considered for any weight. The remaining weight of 65.0 is assigned to CAT score in the following manner: Total Score 50.0, Verbal Section 10.0, Quantitative Section 5.0, and DI Section 0.

Step 3: Category-wise weighted index is computed for each candidate based on Step 2. Candidates above the following minimum cut off of the index for each category are considered further: General 65%, OBC 60%, SC 45%, ST 30% and PWD 45%. For candidates scoring above the cut off index score in each category, the following category-wise CAT Total Percentile cut off is considered: General 98, OBC 90, SC 80, ST 65 and PWD 80. In each category, only candidates above this cut off percentile are taken for short listing for the PA process. From the candidates meeting this criterion, a shortlist of top X based on the index score rank order is called in each category for the PA process.
